Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: My husband and I have lived in the Santa Ynez Valley for over 20 years. In all of our travels, we have found few places as beautiful as our own little Valley. We feel very fortunate to live in such a special place and look forward to sharing our experience with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Ynez:
The Santa Ynez Valley is the perfect retreat. A tranquil, gorgeous setting offering many activities and yet just a 30 minute drive to the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. Enjoy wine tasting at the numerous wineries in the area, shopping in the quaint Danish village of Solvang, or dining at wonderful local restaurants. Hiking biking or boating/fishing in Lake Cachuma. For golfers, the River Course at the Alisal in Solvang is a great public course. Monthly golf packages available. Additional golf courses in the area include top-rated La Purisima and Rancho San Marcos.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a wonderful combination of privacy and convenience. We are situated on 10 acres, yet we are a very short walking distance from downtown Santa Ynez. A beautiful setting with a detached and very private guest house. Vaulted ceilings add spaciousness and charm and the large fireplace is both sophisticated and cozy. We've furnished it with everything you will need for your stay! For golfers, there is your own private 'driving range'. Golf balls and mats provided.
